The Iron Maiden mascots are being turned into a Comic Book series.
The first ever official Iron Maiden comic book series is going to be released in October. The five-part series is based on the popular mobile game of the same title- Iron Maiden: Legacy Of The Beast.
Heavy Metal Publishing have gathered illustrators Kevin J. West, Jason Gorder and Santi Casas to make the comic a reality. The narration is written by Llexi Leon and Ian Edginton. The story follows Maiden’s mascot Eddie as he battles across space and time to fight The Beast.
Jeff Krelitz, CEO of Heavy Metal says, “As a lifelong fan of Iron Maiden, it is a privilege to publish the first official comic giving a narrative to their iconic mascot, Eddie. Heavy Metal’s near half-century-long history of either working with or launching the careers of only the most accomplished artists continues here with the amazing team Iron Maiden has working on this series.”
Llexi Leon, Interactive Creative Director at Phantom Music Management says, “After 40 years of unbridled creativity, innovation, and attitude, Heavy Metal has always been a home to the greatest talent in sequential storytelling and fantasy art. With a natural affiliation to the heavy music genre, it’s a nexus point for counter culture and alternative arts. I can think of no better partner to explore Iron Maiden’s Mythology and expand the Legacy Of The Beast!”
The Iron Maiden: Legacy Of The Beast comic is available on October 11th and available to pre-order here.
